Re: Bamboo Rods, Your Thoughts.....

Unless big fish are your quarry I'd not begin fish with such a rod. A 7'6" 5wt would be fun to learn with.

Re: Know anything about this rod ?

Rated for an 8 line, but try it with a 6 and a 7 if you have them. It is a 1970s rod to my recollection.

Re: Glass Fly Rod

I have a few bamboo and some graphite rods but most are a mix of vintage and contemporary fiberglass. Some of the graphite I will be selling because I never use them.
